Victoria has won out in its effort to have the double daily service resumed on the Southern Pacific between San Antonio and Houston via Victoria, the commission hav ing decided that the road must re store the night train on that run. The change will very probably re sult m some change of the sched ule on the Brownsville road, the present schedule having been made to accord with the new arrangement on the Southern Pacific, in order to make connections with that road at Placedo for Houston and San Antonio. General Manager Miller informed The Herald some time ago that the "new schedule would have to be changed if the S. P. should be obliged to change back to its former schedule. Inspecting the Line. President Miller of the St. Louis, Brownsville &. Mexico Railroad, accompanied by Superintendent O. Roe, General Roadmaster W. J. Carnahan, Superviser S. Daily, Car Accountant W. B. Upp, and Stenographer Dennett, yesterday inspected the main line of the road from Kingsville to Brownsville. The inspection was thorough, and marked attention was paid to details which would help the man agement to understand the fre quent little accidents that have occured during the past few weeks, such 2S rtucks leaving the rails, driving wheels jumping their boundaries and the spreading of rails under very heavy loads. The running of locals between this place and Kingsville was also the subject of an investigation. Locals are required to make never more than 20 miles per hour between the two points, and the running at higher speeds received attention. The special train with the party aboard returned to Kingsville at 2 o'clock this afternoon. Accident at Gun Club Grounds. A peculiar accident happened at the grounds of the Brownsville Gun Club Wednesday afternoon, while a practice shoot was being held. One of the boys attending to the apparatus that fires the clay pigeons was in some unaxplained manner struck by one of the pigeons as it left the sling and it struck the boy, Christine Rodri guez, on the left cheek, close to the nose, puncturing a triangular hole half an inch in diameter, making an ugly wound. Members of the clnb had the boy conveyed to Putegnat's Drug Store, where he received surgical attention. For Rent. Furnished cottage with five r T rooms, Coleman cc ljndsey. Jyll-6t.
